HC Deb 16 November 1950 vol 480 cc189-90W
114. Mr. Janner

asked the Minister of Education to what extent he has been approached by local education authorities about bringing large groups of children to London for the Festival of Britain; what plans are being prepared, with a view to extra facilities being available for schoolchildren; and if he will give an estimate of the aggregate cost involved.

Mr. Tomlinson

I have been approached by a number of local education authorities and other organisations about this matter. I propose to issue as soon as possible a circular to local education authorities about the arrangements that are being made, in consultation with the Festival authorities, to provide facilities for school children.
